FOUCAULT ON THE ARTS AND LETTERS Perspectives for the 21st Century

IN DEFENSE OF READING

Edited by Catherine M. Soussloff

By Sarah E. Worth

“This collection demonstrates the continuing productivity of Foucault’s thinking for understanding a surprisingly wide range of the arts: literature, painting, photography, even dance and music. The essayists offer insightful commentaries on concepts such as archaeology, heterotopia, and the aesthetics of existence, while interpreting Foucault’s explorations on figures from Shakespeare to Beckett, from Bosch to Bacon, and many others.” —Gary Shapiro, Tucker-Boatwright Professor in the Humanities-Philosophy, University of Richmond

“Worth offers a splendid defense not just of reading, but of reading for pleasure. She does this with an eye to challenging the recent obsession with concrete demonstrations of usefulness in academic curricula, something that has cast doubt on the significance of literature inside and outside the academy. The book offers a cogent criticism of such attitudes.” —Eva Dadlez, Professor, Department of Humanities and Philosophy, University of Central Oklahoma

Methods and Approaches

The Philosophy of Virtual Worlds

“These essays on the epistemology of medicine are at the cutting edge of the field. They explore medical knowledge, broadly construed to include researcher, clinician, patient, and media perspectives. The collection is of interest to both medical and philosophical audiences.” —Miriam Solomon, Professor of Philosophy, Temple University

Edited by Sven Ove Hansson

Edited by Mark Silcox

“This book offers an overview of methods and approaches within the quickly growing field of ethics and technology. This book fills a major gap and will be an extremely helpful resource for scholars, students and practitioners working in this field.” —Sabine Roeser, Head of the Ethics and Technology Section of TU Delft

“Are virtual experiences real or worthless? Is doing things in virtual worlds a legitimate way to conduct a human life, or just wasted effort? Are virtual friendships genuine forms of connection, or are they just an empty simulacra of the real thing? This volume addresses these crucial questions head on, and it does so with considerable depth and care.” —C. Thi Nguyen, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Utah Valley University

CONTINENTAL PHILOSOPHY

PHENOMENOLOGY AND THE POLITICAL

A Philosophical Exploration

Edited by S. West Gurley and Geoff Pfeifer

By Hili Razinsky

“Where much of phenomenology has tended to bracket the political, here twenty cutting-edge philosophers turn their phenomenological gaze to some of the most pressing political issues of our day. Here we have a vital contribution to a new wave of publicly engaged philosophy.” —Noëlle McAfee, Professor of Philosophy, Emory University

“The merit of this book lies in showing that ambivalence is often central to our capacity to act, care, and respond to reality. This implies that flourishing is often a matter of how a person shapes her ambivalence, rather than of whether she succeeds in avoiding ambivalence. Razinsky’s book is full of real life examples which make the arguments clearer and more convincing. The book is well written, interesting, surprising, and original.” —Philosophical News

2016 • 366 pages 978-1-78348-769-1 • $44.95 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-768-4 • $135.00 / £90.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-770-7 • $43.99 / £29.99 • eBook

HEGEL, HUSSERL AND THE PHENOMENOLOGY OF HISTORICAL WORLDS By Tanja Staehler “Hegel, Husserl and the Phenomenology of Historical Worlds is a profound treatment of the genesis of life-worlds in their cultural and historical dimensions. Starting with a highly perceptive comparison of Hegel and Husserl as contrasting phenomenologists, Tanja Staehler shows brilliantly how the two thinkers, despite certain affinities, diverge on matters of time and history, the nature of knowledge and the place of others. Derrida and Irigaray emerge as contemporary figures who offer essential correctives to their two German predecessors. The book ends with pellucid reflections on such basic issues as morality, death, and mood. This is a beautifully written text that opens up genuinely new directions of thought for understanding today’s troubled world.” —Edward S. Casey, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, SUNY at Stony Brook; author of The Fate of Place and The World at a Glance 2016 • 258 pages 978-1-78660-286-2 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78660-288-6 • $39.99 / £24.95 • eBook

PLACE AND PHENOMENOLOGY Edited by Janet Donohoe “The very possibility of appearance – and especially of that fundamental mode of appearance that is the subject of phenomenology – is inextricably bound to place. In Place and Phenomenology Janet Donohoe has assembled a selection of essays by leading figures in the field that offers an excellent introduction to the phenomenological inquiry into place as well as a set of concentrated place-oriented phenomenological studies. The volume will be an important contribution to the growing body of literature on place and to new approaches in phenomenology.” —Jeff Malpas, Distinguished Professor, University of Tasmania March 2017 • 346 pages 978-1-78660-030-1 • $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78660-029-5 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78660-031-8 • $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook


CONTINENTAL PHILOSOPHY

MALLARMÉ

PHILOSOPHY AFTER NATURE

Rancière, Milner, Badiou

Edited by Rosi Braidotti and Rick Dolphijn

By Robert Boncardo and Christian R. Gelder

“What have we done? Why did we do it? Against cynicism, the philosophers in this volume stand out for the originality of their analyses of our ties to nature. They encourage us to seek solutions beyond greed, spectacle and division. The strongest thread running through this impressive collection is that we can think innovatively; we can work together with nature.” —James Williams, Deakin University

“'Mallarmé said it all': these conversations with three of France’s leading philosophers explore the complexity of the poet’s thought, moving from the broadly humanistic to the more overtly political. By tying each interpretation to the personal evolution of each thinker, the two editors enhance our understanding both of these readings of Mallarmé and of the philosophers themselves.” —Rosemary Lloyd, Rudy Professor Emerita of French, Indiana University Bloomington Series: Insolubilia: New Work in Contemporary Philosophy 2017 • 120 pages 978-1-78660-311-1 • $29.95 / £19.95 • Paperback 978-1-78660-310-4 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-78660-312-8 • $28.99 / £19.99 • eBook

THE DIALECTIC OF DURATION

THE PHENOMENOLOGY OF GRAVIDITY

By Gaston Bachelard Translated by Mary McAllester Jones. Introduction by Cristina Chimisso

Reframing Pregnancy and the Maternal through Merleau-Ponty, Levinas and Derrida

“Bachelard’s strikingly original conception of time shapes both his philosophy of science and his work on the poetic imagination. Beginning with discontinuity, he explores the way different forms of duration are constructed, bringing out the unique qualities of each. It is a brilliant study of temporal pluralism, dedicated to repose, creativity, and happiness.” —David Webb, Professor of Philosophy, Staffordshire University

“a clear, well-written, comprehensible account of the phenomenology of pregnancy, breaking new ground and leading into innovative practical directions especially regarding adoption and surrogacy” —Dr. Denise Russell, Honorary Research Fellow in Philosophy, University of Wollongong

REFRAMING CONTINENTAL PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION Series edited by Steven Shakespeare and Duane Williams, both Liverpool Hope University

Reframing Continental Philosophy of Religion aims to revitalise continental philosophy of religion. It challenges the standard Western Christian framework which has dominated philosophy of religion in the academy. It provides a platform for voices, theories and traditions which have been suppressed or marginalised by that framework, and offers genuinely new and constructive openings in the field. It is motivated by an imperative to liberate original thinking about religion from the legacy of Empire.

SPECULATION, HERESY, AND GNOSIS IN CONTEMPORARY PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION The Enigmatic Absolute Edited by Joshua Ramey and Matthew S. Haar Farris “Daring, provocative, experimental, and occasionally very strange, these essays gather the efforts of a new generation to think beyond the limits of modern reason. Speculation, heresy, gnosis... it can all be found here.” —Philip Goodchild, Professor of Religion and Philosophy, University of Nottingham 2016 • 272 pages 978-1-78660-141-4 • $44.95 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-78660-140-7 • $135.00 / £90.00 • Hardback 978-1-78660-142-1 • $43.99 / £29.99 • eBook

SIMONE WEIL AND CONTINENTAL PHILOSOPHY Edited by A. Rebecca Rozelle-Stone Simone Weil is an often-overlooked thinker whose insights could radically reshape contemporary discourses on religion, nature, art, ethics, work, politics, and education. This collection of essays situates Simone Weil’s thought alongside prominent Continental thinkers and their philosophical concerns to show the ways in which she belongs to—but also stands outside—some of the major streams of 'Continental discourse', including phenomenology, ethics of embodied disposition and difference, and post-Marxian political thought.

CONTINENTAL PHILOSOPHY SERIES

NEW HEIDEGGER RESEARCH Series edited by Gregory Fried and Richard Polt

The goal of the New Heidegger Research series is to promote informed and critical dialogue that breaks new philosophical ground by taking into account the full range of Heidegger’s thought, as well as the enduring questions raised by his work. The series includes monographs and anthologies that come to grips with Heidegger’s thought or draw inspiration from it, as well as English translations of newly available and un-translated texts by Heidegger himself.

PROTOPHENOMENOLOGY AND THE NATURE OF LANGUAGE Dwelling in Speech I By Lawrence J. Hatab “Hatab deftly integrates phenomenological and analytic resources in philosophy, in consultation with empirical studies, to offer a brilliant analysis of the nonrepresentational existential aspects of how we are in-the-world through the meaning-disclosing performance of language. He traces the disclosive processes of language that cut across the physical, social and cultural dimensions of our existence, prior to and underpinning its representational functions. His analysis not only provides insight into how language works, but also deconstructs the basic assumptions that underlie the central debates in the philosophy of language.” —Shaun Gallagher, Lillian and Morrie Moss Chair of Excellence in Philosophy, University of Memphis May 2017 • 274 pages 978-1-78348-819-3 $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-818-6 $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-820-9 $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook

HEIDEGGER'S GODS An Ecofeminist Perspective By Susanne Claxton “If only a god can save us, Claxton shows this god must be female. Her original and exciting reading of Heidegger is a real page-turner in its innovative connection of Heidegger with both Agamben and ecofeminism to displace the either/or of ecocentrism and anthropocentrism with refreshing insights into Dasein’s possibilities for dwelling.” —Patricia Glazebrook, Professor of Philosophy, Washington State University March 2017 • 176 pages 978-1-78660-242-8 $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78660-244-2 $38.99 / £24.95 • eBook

HEIDEGGER IN RUSSIA AND EASTERN EUROPE Edited by Jeff Love Heidegger’s influence in the twentieth century probably outstrips that of any other philosopher, at least in the so-called Continental tradition. The 'revolution' Heidegger brought about with his compelling readings of the broader philosophical tradition transformed German philosophy and spread quickly to most of Europe, the United States and Japan. This volume examines Heidegger’s influence in a region where his reception has had a remarkable and largely hidden history: Eastern Europe and Russia. July 2017 • 304 pages 978-1-78348-864-3 $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-863-6 $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-865-0 $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook

HEIDEGGER AND THE GLOBAL AGE Edited by Antonio Cerella and Louiza Odysseos Globalization is one of the most contested and (ab)used concepts of our time. Whether one interprets it as a ‘collective illusion’ or as the final stage of capitalism, as ‘uncontrollable multitude’ or as a radical opening of new spaces of freedom, the ‘global age’ represents the conceptual and existential background of our being-in-theworld. But what lies behind this process? What mode of human existence is brought about by the age of technology and ‘global mobilization’? And is it possible to attempt a unitary interpretation of this age that presents itself as both total and pluralistic?

FOUCAULT AND THE MAKING OF SUBJECTS

HEGEMONY, MASS MEDIA AND CULTURAL STUDIES

Edited by Laura Cremonesi, Orazio Irrera, Daniele Lorenzini and Martina Tazzioli

Properties of Meaning, Power, and Value in Cultural Production

“This fascinating set of essays brings together some of the best known French and Anglophone commentators on Foucault’s work today. The result is a splendid collection of engagements with Foucault’s late reconceptualization of subjectivity that ranges widely over the late lecture courses at the Collège de France, and beyond. Foucault and the Making of Subjects takes a subject we thought we knew well – Foucault and the subject – and makes it new (and urgent, again) for us. Endlessly interesting and provocative.” —Ben Golder, University of New South Wales

“Clearly written and forcefully argued, Andrews’ book brings together research across the full range of critical thought to deepen holistic thinking about the ownership and control of media, entertainment and intellectual property; full of essential insights into overcoming the political economy/cultural studies divide.” —Vincent Mosco, Professor Emeritus, Queen's University, Canada

Postcolonial Diasporas and Transatlantic Belonging

NEW PHILOSOPHIES OF SEX AND LOVE

By Rahul K. Gairola

Thinking Through Desire

“Homelandings offers a compelling challenge to received conceptions of home and national belonging by exposing the ways in which these are always already constituted by racism, classism, misogyny, and queerphobia in neoliberal governmental societies. Gairola accomplishes this through a brilliant analysis of transnational strategies of cultural resistance that have produced alternative modes of living and embodiments of home by queer diasporic agents of colour in work by Michelle Cliff, Hanif Kureishi, Jessica Hagedorn, and Jackie Kay. A timely book that stretches the intersectional matrices and transdisciplinary breadth of queer theorising in innovative ways.” —William J Spurlin, Professor of English, Brunel University London

POSTHUMAN URBANISM

PRACTISING RHYTHMANALYSIS

Mapping Bodies in Contemporary City Space

Theories and Methodologies

By Debra Benita Shaw

By Yi Chen

The World Health Organisation estimates that, by 2030, six out of every ten people in the world will live in a city. But what does it mean to inhabit the city in the twenty-first century? Posthuman Urbanism evaluates the relevance and usefulness of posthuman theory to understanding the urban subject and its conditions of possibility. It argues that contemporary science and technology is radically changing the way that we understand our bodies and that understanding ourselves as 'posthuman' offers new insights into urban inequalities.

“This is an important book that pushes rhythmanalysis beyond its deep roots in philosophy and toward the vast and rich fields of cultural studies, visual culture, historiography, social theory and the social sciences. With a superb attention to the practical value of rhythmanalysis for embodied, emplaced, and time-attuned research Yi Chen intelligently embraces and highlights the immense value of rhythm for research methodology and sensuous scholarship.” —Phillip Vannini, Professor of Communication and Culture, Royal Roads University, Canada

The essays collected in this volume attest to the inexhaustible potential of philosophical and ethical questions that arise when we apprehend the enclosure delimiting the human and animal as concepts. The commendable range of essays here open innovative and exciting new directions for further research.” —Kalpana R.

THE CHANGING FACE OF ALTERITY Communication, Technology, and Other Subjects Edited by David J. Gunkel, Ciro Marcondes Filho and Dieter Mersch “Whenever philosophy speaks, it does so in response to the other whispering behind philosophical reason. In this volume, the contributors turn to look at the other face to face, demonstrating cogently how alterity – the uncanny otherness of the other – stands at the very foundation of our thinking and communicative practices. Contextually sensitive and historically informed, this collection provides us with an up-to-date guide for the communicatively perplexed.” —Briankle G.

CREOLIZING THE CANON Series edited by Jane Anna Gordon and Neil Roberts

This series, published in partnership with the Caribbean Philosophical Association, revisits canonical theorists in the humanities and social sciences through the lens of creolization. It offers fresh readings of familiar figures and presents the case for the study of formerly excluded ones. Creolization means that the intellectual resources are mixed and explored at methodological levels. Each volume locates and transforms our understanding of an individual thinker in a way that will have a profound impact on a range of disciplines.

CREOLIZING HEGEL Edited by Michael Monahan “Creolizing Hegel is unquestionably the most important collection of critical essays on Hegel to be published in years. None of the essays simply reject Hegel as a simply Eurocentric thinker, although all engage with his Eurocentrism. More importantly, these essays are comprehensive and cover the arch of Hegel's work. This book will be essential to anyone who is interested in political theory, ethics, and jurisprudence. The sophistication of the essays provides a much needed critical engagement with a thinker who has been both controversial and influential in the entire body of philosophical work in the 20th century.” —Drucilla Cornell, Professor of Political Science, Comparative Literature, and Women and Gender Studies, Rutgers University 2017 • 288 pages 978-1-78660-023-3 • $135.00 / £90.00 • Hardback 978-1-78660-025-7 • $43.99 / £29.99 • eBook

FRANTZ FANON, PSYCHIATRY AND POLITICS By Nigel C. Gibson and Roberto Beneduce The revolutionary and psychiatrist Frantz Fanon was a foundational figure in postcolonial and decolonial thought and practice, yet his psychiatric work still has only been studied peripherally. That is in part because most of his psychiatric writings have remained untranslated. With a focus on Fanon’s key psychiatry texts, Frantz Fanon: Psychiatry and Politics considers Fanon’s psychiatic writings as materials anticipating as well as accompanying Fanon’s better known work, written between 1952 and 1961 (Black Skin, White Masks, A Dying Colonialism, Toward the African Revolution, The Wretched of the Earth). Both clinical and political, they draw on another notion of psychiatry that intersects history, ethnology, philosophy, and psychoanalysis.

CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON THEORY, CULTURE AND POLITICS Series edited by Chris Weedon, Glenn Jordan, Laurent Milesi, Radhika Mohanram and Chris Norris

This series will contribute to the rise and consolidation of a broader cross-disciplinary reflection on the role and relevance of ‘theory’ in our technological and allegedly ‘post-theoretical’ age.

CHINESE SUBJECTIVITIES AND THE BEIJING OLYMPICS

PERFORMATIVE CONTRADICTION AND THE ROMANIAN REVOLUTION

By Gladys Pak Lei Chong

By Jolan Bogdan

“Drawing on Foucault’s theories, Gladys Pak Lei Chong offers here an informed discussion of the modern Chinese state’s techniques of governmentality, in particular in the production of patriotic subjects. The ramifications of her thoughtful analysis go far beyond the Beijing Olympics.” —Rey Chow, Anne Firor Scott Professor of Literature in Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, Duke University

“Authenticity has always been a problematic concept for politics, not least when applied to the idea of revolution, where the claim to authentic actions and beliefs, like the repudiation of the inauthentic, often obscures more than it reveals. Jolan Bogdan brilliantly proves as much in this provocative exploration of the Romanian Revolution of 1989, developing the notion of performative contradiction as a compellingly productive alternative to questions about authenticity that have typically been the focus of historical and philosophical treatments of this same moment.” —Emilio Sauri, Associate Professor, University of Massachusetts, Boston, USA

SUPERPOSITIONS Laruelle and the Humanities Edited by Rocco Gangle and Julius Greve “Francois Laruelle's non-philosophy is as difficult of access as it is seductive and alluring. This volume, with its emphasis on relating non-philosophy to the humanities generally (rather than to philosophy in particular) offers the reader a number of ways in - of entries to Laruelle's radical democracy of thought.” —Steven Shaviro, DeRoy Professor of English, Wayne State University May 2017 • 192 pages 978-1-78660-246-6 • $39.99 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78660-245-9 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78660-247-3 • $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook

THE ATTENTION ECONOMY Labour, Time and Power in Cognitive Capitalism

THE EXTREME IN CONTEMPORARY CULTURE

By Claudio Celis Bueno

States of Vulnerability

“In this insightful and readable book, Claudio Celis develops an immanent critique of the attention economy that draws together work from the best of Italian post-Marxism and poststructuralism in order to demonstrate just how inventive capitalism is at finding new ways of extracting value from human activity and, equally, just how flexible our critical tools must be if we are to expose the continuing contradictions of such exploitation. His piercing analyses of the relationship between labour, value and power culminate in an unparalleled account of how the attention economy traps us in both machinic enslavement and forms of social subjection. For everyone interested in Lazzarato, Berardi, Negri, Stiegler, Deleuze and Guattari this is a must read book.” —Iain MacKenzie, Centre for Critical Thought, University of Kent

“The Extreme in Contemporary Culture performs essential work by bringing together material generally segregated by the discipline of the investigator. Literature, film and television, torture, extreme sports, and terminal illness are all subjected to Nayar’s sharp, critical scalpel. The result is a persuasive case for the existence of a 'culture of extremity' and a 'culture of dehumanization', and the urgent need for an alternative culture of 'interrelatedness'.” —Stephen Eisenman, Professor of Art History, Northwestern University, Author of The Abu Ghraib Effect (2007) and The Cry of Nature: Art and the Making Of Animal Rights (2014) 2017 • 190 pages 978-1-78348-366-2 • $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-365-5 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-367-9 • $38.99/£24.99 • eBook

The series comprises specialized treatments of topics and thinkers together with new translations of key texts from the period.

FREEDOM AND NEGATIVITY IN BECKETT AND ADORNO Something or Nothing By Natalie Leeder “Natalie Leeder’s book stands out through its philosophical sophistication and literary sensitivity. It offers, via the dialogue it creates between Adorno’s philosophical and Beckett’s literary work, an exemplary model of how philosophy and literature can interact to illuminate central issues in the modern world.” —Andrew Bowie, Professor of Philosophy, Royal Holloway, University of London June 2017 • 234 pages 978-1-78660-319-7 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78660-321-0 • $39.99 / £24.99 • eBook

COMMUNICATION AND EXPRESSION Adorno's Philosophy of Language By Philip Hogh Translated by Antonia Hofstätter “An elegant and erudite examination. Learned in the European and American philosophical discussions, Hogh considers the claims of Adorno’s philosophy of language with acumen and insight. But he also puts on the table the question what it means to have a philosophy of language when the on-going possibility of communication and expression is considered one of the most urgent problems of the day.” —Lydia Goehr, Professor, Department of Philosophy, Columbia University 2017 • 298 pages 978-1-78348-728-8 • $44.95 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-727-1 • $135.00 / £90.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-729-5 • $43.99 / £29.99 • eBook

WALTER BENJAMIN AND THE POST-KANTIAN TRADITION By Philip Homburg Walter Benjamin and the Post-Kantian Tradition engages with Benjamin as a theorist of a historical and philosophical problematic: a problematic that he finds manifested, in different philosophical guises, within empiricism, neo-Kantianism and German Romanticism. The book takes us through these manifestations systematically and, in doing so, it demonstrates how Benjamin moves from an aspiring idealist philosopher to a politically engaged Marxist critic without abandoning the theoretical project he develops early on.

CRITICAL AND CULTURAL THEORY SERIES

FUTURE PERFECT: IMAGES OF THE TIME TO COME IN PHILOSOPHY, POLITICS AND CULTURAL STUDIES Series edited by Michael Marder and Patricia Vieira

The Future Perfect series stands at the intersection of critical historiography, philosophy, political science, heterodox economic theory, and environmental thought, as well as utopian and cultural studies. Its aims are two-fold: 1. to theorize the future as it takes shape in the present historical conjunction, and 2. to imagine what kind of a future will have been congruous with the demands of global justice and respect for the environment.

MANIFESTOS FOR WORLD THOUGHT

THE END OF THE WORLD

Edited by Lucian Stone and Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh

Contemporary Philosophy and Art

What are the still-unknown horizons of world thought? This book brings together prominent scholars from varying disciplines to speculate on this obscure question and the many crossroads that face intellectuals in our contemporary era and its aftermath. The result is a collection of “manifestos” that contemplate a potential global future for thinking itself, venturing across some of the most marginalized sectors of East and West (with particular emphasis on the Middle Eastern and Islamicate) in order to dissect crucial issues of culture, society, philosophy, literature, art, religion, and politics. The book explores themes such as universality, translation, modernity, language, history, identity, resistance, ecology, catastrophe, memory, and the body, offering a groundbreaking alignment of texts and ideas with far-reaching implications for our time and beyond.

CRITICAL AND CULTURAL THEORY SERIES

REINVENTING CRITICAL THEORY Series edited by Gabriel Rockhill and Yannik Thiem

The Reinventing Critical Theory series publishes cutting edge work that seeks to reinvent critical social theory for the 21st century. It serves as a platform for new research in critical philosophy that examines the political, social, historical, anthropological, psychological, technological, religious, aesthetic and/or economic dynamics shaping the contemporary situation. Books in the series provide alternative accounts and points of view regarding the development of critical social theory and put critical theory in dialogue with other intellectual traditions and/or with important developments in areas such as postcolonial studies, feminism, queer theory, environmental philosophy and critical race theory. The series aims at developing and advancing new forms of pluralist critical theory that contest in various ways the current hegemonic order.

COMPARATIVE METAPHYSICS Ontology After Anthropology Edited by Pierre Charbonnier, Gildas Salmon and Peter Skafish “This is an exceptionally stimulating collection of essays by seriously brilliant writers. If you think the ontological turn is simply something to be for or against this is not for you. But if you are after some powerfully reflexive thinking that puts the comparative at the foundation of existence then this will not only make you ‘turn’, it will make you jump, dig tunnels and fly.” —Ghassan Hage FAHA, Professor of Anthropology and Social Theory, University of Melbourne 2016 • 364 pages 978-1-78348-858-2 $44.95 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-857-5 $135.00 / £90.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-859-9 $43.99 / £29.99 • eBook

METAPHORS OF INVENTION AND DISSENSION Aesthetics and Politics in the Postcolonial Algerian Novel By Rajeshwari S. Vallury Metaphors of Invention and Dissension explores the relationship between aesthetics and politics in the postcolonial Algerian novel, examining six novels written by two Algerian authors of French expression, Tahar Djaout and Rachid Mimouni. Rajeshwari S. Vallury argues that postcolonial literature demonstrates a conscious, rational, and deliberate engagement with the question of democracy. The author shows how the metaphors of literature invent an arena or platform for the enactment of democratic dissension.

POLITICS OF DIVINATION

THE INVENTION OF THE VISIBLE

Neoliberal Endgame and the Religion of Contingency

The Image in Light of the Arts

By Joshua Ramey

By Patrick Vauday Translated by Jared Bly

“Ramey is an authority on the relations between philosophy and the hermetic traditions. Hermeticists devised techniques of divination in response to a world pervaded by chance and risk, and Ramey, in this compelling and fascinating book, makes the argument that neoliberalism resorts to analogous techniques in its quest to understand an economic world shot-through with contingency and undecidability.” —Kenneth Surin, Professor of Literature and Professor of Religion and Critical Theory, Duke University 2016 • 192 pages 978-1-78348-553-6 $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-552-9 $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-554-3 $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook

We live in a mediatized society, a society one could call a society of images. Working at the intersection of aesthetics and politics, Patrick Vauday challenges the dominant assumptions of this society and its disposition towards images. This challenge does not advocate repudiatingimages altogether, but rather entreats us to see them in a different light. This new way of thinking of images affords a glimpse into what images do and produce, rather than viewing them as copies or mere representations.

Voices from the Anthropocene

ENVIRONMENTAL HUMANITIES

Ethics and Policy in the Atmospheric Anthropocene

Edited by Serpil Oppermann and Serenella Iovino

Edited by Christopher J. Preston

“Oppermann and Iovino have assembled a creative, diverse essay collection, international in scope, often speculative and passionate, and committed to transdisciplinarity. If the Anthropocene usually signifies boosterish technooptimism or dire eco-apocalypse, this book offers the hope, at least, of keener intelligence about what the humanities can be as we enter an era of profound, geologic uncertainty.” —Stephanie LeMenager, Moore Professor of English and Environmental Studies, University of Oregon

“Christopher Preston has emerged as a leading philosopher of the ethics of climate engineering. In this new collection of essays, he has brought together a diverse group of thinkers and analysts from across three continents who wrestle with the complex question, ‘In what ways might it be just to deliberately engineer the world’s climate?’ Preston’s Climate Justice and Geoengineering shows that in the Anthropocene the human ability to transform nature will always likely exceed our confidence in whether it is morally right to do so.” —Mike Hulme, Professor of Climate and Culture, King’s College London 2016 • 234 pages 978-1-78348-637-3 • $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-636-6 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-638-0 • $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook

HUMAN VALUE, ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS AND SUSTAINABILITY The Precautionary Ecosystem Health Principle By Mark Ryan “In this serious and challenging contribution to environmental decisionmaking, that stays alive to the often neglected issue of implementation, Mark Ryan constructs a partnership between the Precautionary Principle and the concept of Ecosystem Health that, at one stroke, brings clarity to the Precautionary Principle, gives traction to the concept of Ecosystem Health, and breathes new life into the sustainability agenda – altogether a signal achievement.” —Alan Holland, Emeritus Professor, Lancaster University Series: Values and Identities: Crossing Philosophical Borders 2016 • 220 pages 978-1-78348-798-1 • $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-797-4 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-799-8 • $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook

ETHICS AND MORAL PHILOSOPHY

Epistemology, Ethics, History and Culture

TESTIMONY/BEARING WITNESS

THE POLITICAL TURN IN ANIMAL ETHICS

Edited by Sybille Krämer and Sigrid Weigel

Edited by Robert Garner and Siobhan O'Sullivan

Testimony/Bearing Witness establishes a dialogue between the different approaches to testimony in epistemology, historiography, law, art, media studies and psychiatry. With examples including the Holocaust, the Khmer Rouge and the Armenian genocide the volume discusses the chances and limits of communicating epistemological and ethical, philosophical and cultural-historical, past and present perspectives on the phenomenon and concept of bearing witness.

“This excellent volume highlights the arrival of a 'political turn' in theorizing about human-nonhuman relations, with contributions that discuss state power, democratic contestation, regulatory processes, and social movement strategy. These wide-ranging and fascinating essays not only enrich our understanding of animal ethics, but also challenge us to rethink political theory from the ground up in full recognition that we inhabit more-than-human societies and polities. Garner and O'Sullivan's volume is a superb place to start to explore both the political turn in animal ethics, and the animal turn in political theory.” —Sue Donaldson, Queen's University, Canada

VALUES AND IDENTITIES: CROSSING PHILOSOPHICAL BORDERS Series edited by Paul Crowther and Tsarina Doyle

No society can exist without values, yet with the accelerating pace of technological and societal transformations, it is increasingly difficult to determine how values are to be understood and to be negotiated when in conflict. How do values define human identity and the different activities through which this identity finds expression?

INCOMMENSURABILITY AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICAL REASONING, ETHICS AND JUSTICE By Martijn Boot “This book is a rigorous treatment of a major question: Can there be rational decisions between options having incommensurable values? Challenging the view that incommensurability does not preclude rational choice, Boot details obstacles to choices between incommensurables and indicates how practical reasoning should accommodate them.” —Robert Audi, John A.

ETHICS AND MORAL PHILOSOPHY SERIES

MORAL PSYCHOLOGY OF THE EMOTIONS Series edited by Mark Alfano, Associate Professor of Ethics and Technology, Delft University of Technology

How do our emotions influence our other mental states (perceptions, beliefs, motivations, intentions) and our behaviour? How are they influenced by our other mental states, our environments, and our cultures? What is the moral value of a particular emotion in a particular context? This series explores the causes, consequences, and value of the emotions from an interdisciplinary perspective. Emotions are diverse, with components at various levels (biological, neural, psychological, social), so each book in this series is devoted to a distinct emotion.

THE MORAL PSYCHOLOGY OF FORGIVENESS

THE MORAL PSYCHOLOGY OF PRIDE

THE MORAL PSYCHOLOGY OF SADNESS

Edited by Kathryn J. Norlock

Edited by J. Adam Carter and Emma C. Gordon

Edited by Anna Gotlib

“The Moral Psychology of Forgiveness is a welcome addition to the philosophical and psychological literature on forgiveness. It considers the nature of forgiveness, the norms that govern it, and the means to facilitate it in difficult social contexts. Both those coming to the topic for the first time and those already expert in the field will find much to appreciate.” —Glen Pettigrove, University of Glasgow

Is it good to be proud? We sometimes happily speak of being proud of our achievements, ethnicities and identities, yet pride is also often described as the most serious of the seven deadly sins. This edited collection of original essays examines pride from a variety of perspectives in philosophy, psychology, sociology and anthropology. The volume seeks to explore such topics as the nature of pride, its connection to other human emotions, whether it is a virtue or vice (or both), and what role it might play in both our intellectual and moral lives. Containing diverse voices and viewpoints, this book aims to illuminate the various and complex dimensions of pride.

In this volume, a multi-disciplinary team of scholars - from fields including philosophy, women’s and gender studies, bioethics and public health, and neuroscience - addresses these and other questions related to this nearly-universal emotion that all of us experience, and that some of us dread. Somewhat surprisingly, sadness has been largely ignored by philosophers and others within the humanities, or else under-theorized as a subject worthy of serious and careful attention. This volume reverses this trend, presenting sadness as not merely a feeling or affect, but an emotion of great moral significance that in important ways underwrites how we understand ourselves and each other.

NON-WESTERN PHILOSOPHY

MORAL PSYCHOLOGY OF CONFUCIAN SHAME

Fighting Games, Martial Arts and Gamic Orientalism

Shame of Shamelessness

By Chris Goto-Jones

By Bongrae Seok

“Often misunderstood, marginalized, and mistreated, we, the gamers, train to acquire strategic thinking and analytical skills while making life-time friendship through fighting games. Goto-Jones uncovers this kind of engagement as the practice of pure discipline. This eye-opening and ground-breaking study is deeply significant to us, the gamers, revealing the connections between what we have gained through those experiences and the martial arts. As a gamerphilosopher, Professor Goto-Jones exposes the wonders of fighting games from an academic standpoint with unusual insight and passion. I completely agree that Street Fighter has made me the 'better person' that I am today. Now kids have a legitimate reason to argue with their parents.” —Daigo 'The Beast' Umehara

“Bongrae Seok takes the neglected virtue of shame- so common in the Confucian tradition and yet commonly undervalued and even denigrated in Western moral psychology - and argues convincingly for a new appreciation of it. In a wide-ranging and yet nuanced argument, Seok methodically engages the literature of evolutionary psychology, Ancient Greek moral theory, current experimental and clinical psychology, current philosophical moral psychology, and most importantly, early Confucian theories of ethics and selfcultivation. His conclusion is that shame is a rich, multi-dimensional ethical emotion that deserves more attention from philosophers and psychologists. One begins to wonder from his analysis if shame may be a necessary component of any complete system of moral competence.

CONTEMPORARY KOREAN POLITICAL THOUGHT AND PARK CHUNG-HEE

Problems and Debates

By Jung In Kang

Edited by Youngsun Back and Philip J. Ivanhoe

“This book is an important contribution to the fortunes of global democratization. Focusing on developments in South Korea during the past seven decades, Kang shows how Korean politics has followed and not followed the dominant Western ideologies of liberalism, conservatism, nationalism, and radicalism.” —Fred Dallmayr, author of Being in the World: Dialogue and Cosmopolis (2013)

“Readers hungry for insights into Korea’s cultural history over the last six centuries need look no farther than this comprehensive survey of traditional Korean philosophy. In these pages they will meet such giants as Toegye, Yulgok and Dasan and will discover that Korean philosophy was both practical and theoretical, reflecting a moral psychology shaped by ethical concerns.” —Don Baker, Professor, Department of Asian Studies, University of British Columbia

COMPLICITY

CREDO CREDIT CRISIS

Criticism Between Collaboration and Commitment

Speculations on Faith and Money

By Thomas Docherty

Edited by Aidan Tynan, Laurent Milesi and Christopher John Müller

“This is a marvellously illuminating book. Interrogating the philosophical meaning of complicity through highly original reflections on Shakespearian drama, the writing of Hanna Arendt and encompassing also the late work of the great Scottish poet Edwin Morgan, the author considers the parameters in history and the present of the drive to be compliant and complicit. In the context of the audit culture in the UK university system the author makes the strongest claim for criticism, beyond academia, perhaps as a way of life.” —Angel McRobbie, Professor of Communications, Goldsmiths University of London

Money facilitates the rites and rituals we perform in everyday life. More than a mere medium of exchange or a measure of value, it is the primary means by which we manifest a faith unique to our secular age. With the effects of the 2008 economic crises continuing to be felt across the world, this volume brings together some of the most important contemporary voices in philosophy, literature, theology, and critical and cultural theory together volume to assert the need to interrogate and broaden the terms of the theological critique of capitalism.

DECOLONIZING FEMINISM

Imagery, Presence and the Location of the Caribbean Figure

Transnational Feminism and Globalization

By Roshini Kempadoo

Edited by Margaret A. McLaren

“Roshini Kempadoo invites us into a complex space that offers new ways of reading photographs, documents, and letters focusing on the Caribbean. This book is wonderfully researched. An expert reader of the visual, Kempadoo is the voice that is able to view the archive as a performative space that is revisited time and again. An insightful and important contribution to the study of identity, race, memory, and global studies.” —Deborah Willis, Professor of Photography and Imaging, New York University - Tisch School of the Arts

Ideal for students and scholars in Gender and Globalization, Transnational Feminism and Feminist Theory more broadly, this book introduces the key issues in, and addresses the most significant challenges for, contemporary transnational feminist politics. In a time of globalization, what does an inclusive feminist politics entail? Are the visions of global feminism and transnational feminism compatible? Is the human rights approach the best approach for feminists in the 21st century? How does social location or identity influence our strategies for achieving global gender justice? This book examines the efficacy of the human rights framework for women’s liberation and evaluates the relevance of current feminist frameworks by looking to indigenous struggles, activism, and knowledges.

EXPLORING COMPLICITY

FAIR WORK

Concept, Cases and Critique

Ethics, Social Policy, Globalization

Edited by Michael Neu, Robin Dunford and Afxentis Afxentiou

Edited by Kory P. Schaff

“Practices of complicity are as prevalent as they are under-theorised. This book seeks to redress this situation, and is highly recommended for its innovative and wide-ranging approach to the subject.” —Scott Veitch, Paul KC Chung Professor in Jurisprudence, University of Hong Kong

Fair Work explores topics relating to work and labor at the intersection of ethics, social justice, and public policy. The volume brings together essays by scholars in philosophy, education, economics, and law that draw our attention to significant issues raised by the transformation of modern work. The first part examines work in the context of traditional ethical issues such as virtue, dignity, and justice, while the second part includes critical investigations at the intersection of ethics, social policy, and globalization on topics such as education and job credentials, happiness in the workplace, women and exploitation, open borders and migrant labor, and human rights. This volume will be of interest to students, professors, social scientists, policy makers, and informed citizens trying to understand the complex issues facing workers in the era of globalization.

POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY AND POLITICAL ACTION

By Daniel Little

Imperatives of Resistance

“Long the most careful observer of social science among analytical philosophers, Dan Little actually reads what we social scientists say. His new book is thus the most up-to-date and best informed treatment of social science from the ranks of analytical philosophy. That quality makes New Directions in the Philosophy of Social Science required reading for both social scientists and philosophers.”—Douglas Porpora, Professor of Sociology, Drexel University

SOCIAL SUFFERING Sociology, Psychology, Politics

RESEARCHING RESISTANCE AND SOCIAL CHANGE A Critical Approach to Theory and Practice By Mikael Baaz, Mona Lilja and Stellan Vinthagen Resistance has often been connected with anti-social attitudes, destructiveness, reactionary or revolutionary ideologies, unusual and sudden explosions of violence and emotional outbursts. This book goes beyond these conventions. By drawing connections between resistance and politics, between performance and everyday strategies, and between the juridical and its counter-strategies, this book provides students with a transdisciplinary understanding of contemporary debates in this emerging field.

By Emmanuel Renault Translated by Maude Dews There are various forms of suffering that are best described as social suffering, such as stress, harassment, experience of poverty and domination. Such suffering is a matter of social concern, but it is rarely a matter of discussion in the social sciences, political theory or philosophy. This book aims to change this by making social suffering central to an interdisciplinary critical theory of society. The author advances the various contemporary debates about social suffering, connecting their epistemological and political stakes. He provides tools for recasting these debates, constructs a consistent conception of social suffering, and thereby equips us with a better understanding of our social world, and more accurate models of social critique.

THE ETHICS AND POLITICS OF IMMIGRATION

THE POLITICAL THEORY OF CHE GUEVARA

Core Issues and Emerging Trends

By Renzo Llorente

Edited by Alex Sager

Nearly half a century after his death, Ernesto “Che” Guevara remains a compelling and controversial figure. He was an original social theorist, and many of his writings attest to an innovative interpretation of various concepts and commitments central to Marxist thought. This is one of the first works to comprehensively consider his contribution to social and political theory for a student audience.

“This collection deftly accomplishes the difficult task of accurately representing the current state of the philosophical debates on migration while also broadening this discourse to address many critical but hitherto overlooked real world issues. Timely, illuminating, and methodologically pluralistic, The Ethics and Politics of Immigration is an important contribution to the field and a superb example of publicly engaged philosophy.” —Shelley Wilcox, Professor of Philosophy, San Francisco State University 2016 • 284 pages 978-1-78348-613-7 • $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-612-0 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-614-4 • $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook

THE PREGNANCY [DOES-NOT-EQUAL] CHILDBEARING PROJECT

TOWARDS CORPOREAL COSMOPOLITANISM

A Phenomenology of Miscarriage

Performing Decolonial Solidarities

By Jennifer Scuro

By Anjana Raghavan

“Philosophy has largely ignored the phenomenon of miscarriage, perhaps due to its bodily, conceptual, and political messiness. Scuro’s contribution is welcome precisely because it refuses to sanitize or clean up that mess, opting instead for a compelling approach that includes visual representation, personal narrative, phenomenological analysis, and social commentary. In seeking to disentangle pregnancy from its teleological framework, Scuro puts the bodily experience of pregnancy, situated inevitably and precariously within neoliberalism, front and center.” —Ann Cahill, Professor of Philosophy, Elon University, USA

This book explores the ways in which existing narratives of cosmopolitanism are often organised around European and American discourses of human rights and universalism, which allow little room for the articulation of an affective, embodied and subaltern politics. It brings contemporary understandings of cosmopolitan solidarities into dialogue with the body, affect and the persistent spectre of colonial difference. Race, ethnicity, sexuality and gender are all extremely important to these articulations of cosmopolitan belongings, and we cannot really speak of communities without speaking of embodiment and emotion.

DEMOCRATIC PROBLEM-SOLVING

The Institutions of 21st-Century Philosophy

Dialogues in Social Epistemology

By Robert Frodeman and Adam Briggle

By Justin Cruickshank and Raphael Sassower

“[A] lively and provocative new book … Socrates Tenured offers a bold diagnosis of philosophy’s malaise and a proposed means to escape it: whatever your view of the proposals, they are worth exploring and debating” —LSE Review of Books

“This is a superb book. It is both a philosophical examination of the idea of plural epistemological communities and a practical exemplification of the virtue of understanding democracy as an open conversation. Written in the context of a rise in populism, it shows that a hopeful and temperate approach to issues that divide our political communities is possible.” —John Holmwood, Professor of Sociology, University of Nottingham Series: Collective Studies in Knowledge and Society 2017 • 314 pages 978-1-78660-091-2 • $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78660-090-5 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78660-092-9 • $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook

REFRAMING THE BOUNDARIES: THINKING THE POLITICAL Series edited by Alison Assiter and Evert van der Zweerde

This series aims to mine the rich resources of philosophers in the ‘continental’ tradition for their contributions to thinking the political. There are those – Hannah Arendt, Walter Benjamin, Semën Frank, Benedetto Croce, Carl Schmitt, or Jan Patočka, for example – who have explicitly addressed the sphere of the political, whilst there are others, for instance Søren Kierkegaard, Emmanuel Levinas, Merab Mamardašvili, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, or Julia Kristeva, where the implications of their thought for the domain of the political remain largely implicit.

By Emilio Carlo Corriero Translated by Vanessa Di Stefano

“How do we make sense of the post-Soviet condition when the “transition” paradigm has bankrupted? How do we put Putin’s Russia in a cultural context without falling prey to essentialism and misleading generalisations? In this original and elegantly written book Andrey Makarychev and Alexandra Yatsyk interpret the work of leading Soviet semiotician Yuri Lotman to offer us an enlightening perspective to understanding the present Russian political reality.” —Ivan Krastev, Chairman, Center for Liberal Studies, Sofia 2017 • 228 pages 978-1-78348-832-2 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-834-6 • $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook

“Far from being a pure and simple annotated bibliography of Italian studies of Nietzsche in recent decades, the work of Corriero has the breadth of a true and complete panorama of a large part of recent Italian philosophy, and can contribute significantly to the theoretical debate on issues and possibilities that are still open for discussion.” —Gianni Vattimo, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Turin 2016 • 286 pages 978-1-78348-813-1 • $39.95 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-812-4 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-814-8 • $38.99 / £24.99 • eBook
